For the last week or so, Newcastle United’s interest in Kieran Trippier has been repeatedly discussed in England and Spain.
It was even explained the Magpies wanting the right-back has forced Atlético Madrid to hold a meeting with him to learn his future plans. The ex-Burnley man, who was wanted by Manchester United last summer, has made clear his desire to return to the Premier League.
Marca on Monday explain the Tyneside club have ‘already made an offer’ for the fullback and the La Liga winners ‘will decide’ whether or not to let him leave in the winter market.
Having refused to let the England international leave in the summer window, the situation has now taken a turn, because several factors have changed.
The first is the ‘strong commitment’ shown by Eddie Howe’s side. The second one is the player’s wish to return to his country and the last factor is that Andrea Berta, Los Rojiblancos’ sporting director, is already combing the market for a new right-back.
It’s claimed Newcastle have prepared a €30m offer that has been at Atlético’s offices for a ‘couple of days’. It is an ‘irrefutable proposal’ for a player who has less than 18 months on his contract and his value would drop further next summer.
In addition to this, Newcastle are ready to offer the 31-year-old an annual salary of €8m, which is more than what he is currently earning at the Metropolitano.
With Newcastle already making an ‘irrefutable proposal’, Marca say Atlético ‘will decide’ the future of Trippier. A transfer in January seems to be on the cards as the report says he already has a ‘foot and a half’ outside his current club.
